Fuji Announces the X-E3 | AF Tracks ‘Twice As Fast’ As Previous Models, 4K Video & More
Fuji is a brand that definitely has the “It Factor”. Photographers don’t merely enjoy the images they capture, they enjoy the process of capturing them. The X-E series was and is a cornerstone of the Fuji experience and, after four years, the E-X2 ‘s true successor is finally here.
Fuji’s position in the market capitalizes on the nostalgia of the craft. The rangefinder form and retro design may remind of a golden era of photography, but that isn’t keeping Fuji from focusing on the market demands of the present and future.
Highlights & Specs
The X-E3 offers an upgraded AF system performance with a new image recognition algorithm to “track moving subjects up to half the size, or moving twice as fast as previous models.” Fuji is also continuing their advancement in video features as this camera can output video to an external monitor via the HDMI port and input audio from an external microphone. Additionally, it offers Touch AF to change the focus area and refocusing.
